Just tried the red+black handmade custom blades from levi.... ruby is all wood 5 ply but has insane gears! Slow but fast as hell if you allow yourself to go through the ball. It's my new main for now. Currently have mxp and elp on it in max

It's still a good blade that gives you nice and clear feel while playing.
Cheers, Stan

After a hiatus, I finally got an Arctic Wood with ST handle, 85g. H2 Neo on both sides.

After a few sessions I would say its hardness and flex is between my Joola Greenline Extreme (Ebony) and the Yinhe E-1 (Koto) I used to have. Not excessively stiff, nor too much flex--probably a bit more on the stiff side.

On some hits it feels quite crispy, yet on others it feels average, and sometimes flat hits are nice, other times they go long. My guess then is that the sweet spot isn't too large, but not terrible.

The feedback is interesting too. Its kind of like the feedback one gets with ESN rubbers in that a snappy feel arises when a proper hit is achieved. Overall, it feels like a Stiga blade, but I actually like this one.

It is also quite a pretty blade, veneers and handle. I like it.

I used to have a Samsonov Force Pro Black, not a Clipper specifically, but to compare: 

Arctic is slower and harder, Arctic is probably only a bit more flexy than SFPB, I found Arctic easier to loop with probably due to its lower speed. 

Force Pro Black is the only blade I have ever truly felt like was out of my control zone. That thing was brutally fast. Arctic is much more controllable, and reminds me of a more crisp feeling Eternity.
